FIFTY-SIXTH YEAR. NO. '204.

PRICE TWO CENTS.
Procedure by Which Big
Fine Was Imposed
"Calm Judgment" of the High
er Court Relied Upon to
Reverse the Decision
New York, Aug. 21. The dim-tors
of the Standard Oil company have is
sued a pamphlet to its employes and
stockholders relative to the fine of $;,.
210.000 imposed on the Standard Oil
company of Indiana. The pamphlet
contains a statement from President
Moffeit, president of the Standard Oil
company of Indiana, and a number of
editorial articles favorable to the com
pany, taken from various American
( all iiiii:iii liiiiix'cni.
The especially noteworthy feature of
the pamphlet is the introductory state
ment, which is as follows:
"The directors of the Standard Oil
company in printing this pamphlet de
fire to emphasize for the half million
people directly interested in its wel
fare the assurance of the company's
absolute innocence of wrong doing i:i
any of the prosecutions lately institu
ted against it in the federal courts.
Particularly is this so in the present
Chicago & Alton railroad case, made
notorious by the sensational line of
$29.2l0,umi imposed on the Standar.l
Oil company of Indiana.
ot a 'nc of Ilrhntiiii;.
"It should bo known as widely as
ro-ssiblo that this is no case of rebate
or discrimination, but simply of the
legality of a freight rate. It should be
known that the verdict was obtained
by the government upon the most hair-.
splitting technicality, aided by the rig
orous exclusion of evidence that would
have removed all presumption of guilt.
Sn) Court It In ICrror.
"If the judgment in question be al
lowed to stand, the company will be
forced to pay $2i,ooo (that is, fifty
times the value of the oil) for every
carload carried over the Alton' road
during two years .at an opt n C-eent
rati a rate used over three competing
railroads for from 10 to 11 years," the
"The trial judge refused to nllo-v
proof that the (l-ecnt rate had been
fild by the Chicago & Eastern Illinois,
and was, therefore, a 'legal rate.' Hj
refused to allow proof that linseed oil,
for instance, was carried at S cents,
and other bulk commodities as low as
5 cents. He insisted that IS cents was
the only legal rate for oil, when no one
had ever paid it, and when it was au
thoritatively sworn that it did not ap
ply to oil.
"The case has been taken on appeal
to the higher courts, to which we must
look for that calm judgment, which will
rescue the rights of the citizens from
the field of public clamor and from the
domain of vindictive politics."
YANGER IS BESTED
Lasts Less Than Four Rounds
Before Fierce Onslaughts of
LATTER REACHES HIS WIND
Bid Crowd Sees Brief Battle at Fort
Wayne Ball Park and Cheers
Fort Wayne, Ind., Aug. 21. The big
gest crowd on record at a boxing exhi
bition here saw Packy McFarland win
a victory over Benny Yanger at the
baseball park last evening.
The contest began just before 10
o'clock and lasted nearly four rounds.
Yanger had no fight left in him when
his seconds threw up the sponge with
50 seconds of the fourth round yet to
The betting favored McFarland. Both
men weighed in at exactly noon at the
St. Joe Athletic club and both were
under weight, McFarland being 128 and
Yanger 129 pounds. The limit was ISO
at that hour and the $250 forfeit money
was returned to each.

The first round was even, with rapid ists. Miller's death was unexpected,

the steam possible behind his blows.
They continued to play for the wind
and few blows landed elsewhere. The
round ended with both well winded,
but without apparent damage.
The second round was much like the
first, with some slight advantage to
Md'arUmd, who kepi his face well
guarded and cleverly avoided upper
cuts that would have told. Packy'-s
frit nds gave him much audible encour
agement and Yanger's friends grew
anxious. The breakaways were taken
advantage of by both.
Third It omul l ot, I.
There was no indication that the
third round would end so disastrously
for Yanger. Roth sprang at each oth
er, and McFarland landed savage blows
on Yanger's wind. Packy was evident
ly in full possession of his breath and
strtngth and rained uppcrcuts on Yau-
ers wind with lights and lefts on the
jaw and mouth, causing Benny to spit
blood. Packy's first decided advantage
was in knocking Yanger against the
ropes in the hitter's own comer. It
was evident Yanger was fast getting
weary. He took the defensive and
Packy was no longer in danger. Three
times Yanger took the count, once up
to eight and twice to nine. Once he
sank to his knees without being struck,
but the referee gave him another
'rol Y-!1m for llcs'lnhm.
After the last count of nine there
were yells from the crowd to Referee
Ilogan to end the contest, as Yanger
hardly could stand.
The second. Abe Attell, then threw
the sponge into the ring, but neither of
:he combatants saw it. and Packy was
clinched with Yanger ami putting in
the finishing touches on Yanger's wind
when the referee rushed between them
and ended the battle.

to Ward Off Danger to Troops
Washington, I). C, Aug. 21. The war

Cuba, which staitled the medical offi
cers. It shows that in the short period
"ince tlie withdrawal of the American
government of intervention and the re
assttinptiou of American government by
the Cuban army of pacification, there
has been a woeful neglect of sanitary
ptecautions and an almost complete
disregard of the treaty obligations un
der which Cuba was placed to keep the

The governor's report also discloses
the fact that the fever in this last out
break has not been confined to the
hospital corps men, but has extended to
other soldiers. He also indicates that
the evil sanitary conditions cannot lie
cured this year in spite of the most
vigorous efforts on the part of the
American authorities, in which it ap

UP TO THE HAGUE
Controversy Between United
States and Great Britain
Will be Referred.
NEWFOUNDLAND MAKES LAW
Interferes With Rights Conferred Upon
Americans by Treaty With
London, Aug. 21. Great Britain has
acctpted a tentative proposition of the
t'nittd States to submit the Newfound
land fisheries dispute to arbitration at
The Hague. While the matter is in
process of arbitration the fisheries will
be conducted under the sar e modus
vivendi as last year.
The issue is of importance as a mat
ter of principle if not of dollars, as
tins issue between Great Britain and
;Ameiiea has arisen over the assertion
by Newfoundland of the right of that
colony to pass local laws restricting
fishing privileges conferred by treaty
upon American citizens. Newfound
land's action is based on the plea that
the laws are equally applicable to New
foundlanders, or, in other words, are
piecisely similar to laws intended for
tlie protection of game.
Held Proposes Arbitration.
Both the foreign office and tlie em
bassy maintain diplomatic reserve, but
il has been learned from unquestion
able sources that the long eorrosixmd
ence between the two governments
made it seem clear that their conten
tions could not be harmonized and had
readied an impasse.
Finally Mr. Reid presented a pro
posal to submit the dispute to the arbi
tration of The Hague tribunal, having
the authority of President Roosevelt
and Secretary Root to do so.
Stands as Now ftir "Year.
After a we k or two of consideration
the British government accepted the
proposal, and then the American gov-
I eminent proposed that for another
year, while the matter was in process
of arbitration, the fisheries should be
conducted as th3y were last year, un
der the same modus vivendi.
